Old England Watch

I’ve mentioned my love of gorgeous and classic watches before, and the latest addition to my growing collection is an Old England watch, from Time Squared.

Old England launched in 1967, and specialise in making bold and distinctive British watches, many with Union Jacks on them, that look really cool.

As soon as I saw it, I fell in love with it, and so has everyone else who's seen it. I love the thick black glossy strap, but my favourite part is the clockface itself. It has roman numerals on it, which really makes it look like something from Old England.

I love how comfortable it feels on my arm and how it's not too 'in your face', while still making a fun statement. The watch is definitely a unique watch, and is really unlike the other, more simple, watches in my collection. Retailing at £90, it's definitely worth it.

It's the little details on the watch that I love as well. The minute and hour hand look like they're really intricately made, and the beautiful gold detailing on the watch make's it look more special.
As I mentioned,  Old England watches are bold and brave, and I loved that on the packaging, it had a Thackeray quote: 'Bravery never goes out of fashion'.

So, all in all, you'll definitely see me wearing this watch a lot (everyone who's seen me out and about in the last week or so will have already seen me flaunt it) and I definitely recommend you check out the brand and more from Time Squared.

So unique, I love it! My current New Look watch is conveniently running low on battery - excuse to buy!

That is a gorgeous watch! I love that the numbering is quite traditional, but the actual watch itself is so modern. The combination is perfect.
